Hello all, I am new to using Mitsubishi and I am having issues communicating with my Cognex Camera. I have the camera configured in Datamn Setup Tool. I have the Ethernet card configured and validated. I am able to ping both devices and get a response on the network. However, I received an SLMP failure in Dataman and there's no communication between my camera and the controller. Please see the attached photos to view how I have the camera and PLC configured.
I am using an Omron NJ controller and a Cognex Dataman 260 bar-code scanner. At this point I can trigger the scanner and receive data from the scanner via ethernet/ip. My issue is in converting the response from the scanner to something human readable. The bar-code I scanned reads "872-3GSq". The results of the scan are located in the variable Dataman_to_NJ-. At some point I know I need to use the SWAP function but I believe my lack of data type knowledge in this system is hindering me. How can I convert the value in Dataman_to_NJ to the string "87"? Any assistance would be appreciated.
